The site that houses the new Patterns club on Brighton’s coast is one that’s drenched in musical history. Previously the Audio Club, Patters was reopened recently by The Mothership Group and has since proved to be at the forefront of electronic music venues all over the city. As well as being part of The Great Escape festival that will be taking place in May, there will be a special party taking place on the final night on the festival.
Dubbed The Late Escape and in association with Ninja Tune, Patterns will host this party on Friday 20th May, when an all star DJ line up of house and disco deviance will flock to the venue with all those revelling in the week’s festivities.
Headlining the affair will be the London based artist Throwing Shade. Nabihah Iqbal is rising producer and a host on NTS Radio, with her next EP House Of Silk having just been released on Ninja Tune back on the 4th of March. Having already appeared on Kassem Mosse’s Ominira imprint and Happy Skull, Throwing Shade is becoming one of the most exciting names in peripheral pop.
Joining her will be Max Graef, one of the most talented young producers of house and disco music to have come out of Germany. Max has established himself amongst the most elite through releases on Heist, Sonar Kollektiv and Odd Socks, however it is his forthcoming EP on Ninja Tune, another collaboration with Glenn Astro, who he will be playing alongside at this date in Brighton.
Finally, we have Letherette, the Wolverhampton based Ninja Tune regular, whose most recent EP Refresh has wowed many of his peers on the disco tip around the UK. Having also been remixed by the likes of Jimmy Edgar and Barker and Baumecker, he is well on his way to becoming a name that’s internationally renowned.
These four DJs will be coming together to play at Patterns in Brighton for what will be a sure fire highlight on The Great Escape Festival. Coming on the final day however, it will be a late escape from the action as here we party through the night with Ninja Tune and some of their most esteemed artists.
